  1. Looks to me as if they fit quite well–they’re just a bit more tenacious than their fellows. They’re waiting for just the right conditions, and they haven’t encountered them yet. Soon, though…

  2. I do like this! Fall and winter have their own distinct shapes and messages too.

    • I love the shapes I’m beginning to see around now. While I do love the colors and fullness of Spring, there is something visually appealing to me about the stark lines of late fall/early winter.

  3. Is it “Look before you leap” or “He who hesitates is lost”? Which is the wiser course of action? Will these seeds have waited too long and find the conditions unfavorable for sprouting? Or were they smart and will find windier days and less competition from their brethren? There’s a metaphor in there somewhere.

  5. I like to think a ‘misfit’ is something that is out of place in one specific location but as a result can be happy almost everywhere else. Lovely image though Melanie, the monochrome really works here.

    • My thought-process for the title is a bit involved, but perhaps the most direct route to explaining it is that this dandelion reminds me a bit of Albert Einstein. ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, I’m glad you like the monochrome. I’m grateful for the feedback.
